Vineyard description:

Cerretta di Perno (to distinguish it from the more well-known Cerretto of Serralunga d’Alba) is a hard-to-reach vineyard between the hamlets of Perno and Disa in the commune of Monforte. It is very steep, difficult to farm and remote. Called “Srea” in the Piedmontese dialect, it was nearly abandoned in the sixties but has been re-cultivated over the last few decades. It produces wines of freshness and vivacity, though no producer bottles it as a cru on its own.
